Welcome to our Website!

Roscommon LEADER Partnership (RLP, also known as RIDC – Roscommon Integrated Development Company Ltd.) is an organisation that brings together key development projects including rural enterprise, development and social inclusion that work for the betterment of the people of Co. Roscommon.  RLP and its predecessors have supported and assisted enterprise and individuals in Co. Roscommon since 1991.  Throughout that time, we have seen many changes to Irish society, not least in Co. Roscommon.  There has also been much change to many of the programmes and services we provide. 


RLPs current responsibilities include the delivery of the Rural Development Programme (LEADER) and the Social Inclusion Community Activation Programme (SICAP).  Other initiatives, funded by various Government Departments and Agencies/Bodies in Ireland and EU are also delivered by the company, including the Rural Social Scheme, TÚS, Warmer Homes Scheme and the Traveller Health Programme.  Roscommon LEADER Partnership has a very broad remit, having a role in such diverse subjects as tourism, enterprise, environment, recreation, social inclusion and assistance to the unemployed to name but a few.


Through this website, RLP wants to keep you informed of the many and varied services and schemes/programmes that we provide, whether through direct funding schemes and programmes, assistance to the unemployed and disadvantaged or specific actions to aid identified target groups. To make the information easier to access, we have grouped the supports into key headings specifically of relevance to you. For the very latest news on all of our activities, please connect with us on Facebook and Twitter.
